Sorry if the stripes make your eyes go funny but the wool is long length shaded and so the stripes are irregular and so they don't match up at the front. It didn't help that I fastened the toggles up a row wrong making one side look longer than the other. I did the body all in one so that the stripes would even out better, I didn't want any large patches of colour.
As you can see in the video I now have yet another Tunisian book and 2 double ended hooks. I really must get down to some practise very soon.
My son and daughter in law came down on Saturday and left their two dogs with me for an hour or so. Buster lived with the girls until he came to live with me so there are no problems between them Well I thought so until Buster made his feeling very plain about the pecking order and sleeping arrangements.
The two girls, who are both bigger than Buster, had to squash up on the 2 seat sofa.
Buster, on the other hand, was lounging in style on the 3 seat sofa all by himself.
Even when he was awake he was on guard in case they wanted to join him in his area.
I also make myself a 4ply sweater from a machine cone. This pattern came from Plus size crochet by Margaret Hubert. I added the collar and the edging. It did seem strange to me to be crocheting the first size in the pattern and it still is a little large on me. It is draped on the smaller sized mannequin so you can't see the full size of it
We had a gloriously sunny day on Saturday and I hoped that Spring was coming at last but the weather is back to cold again yesterday and today. I am really fed up now of being cold. The only thing in the weather's favour is at least it isn't raining today.
I am going to try to finish off the chartreuse green chunky cardigan that I am making so will have something else to show for my next video and blog posting.
